I am a award winning competition BBQ pit master and wanted something to set up and let it go instead of constantly checking fires and making air adjustments. This smoker is great for just that problem. Meats come out flavorful and moist, and it's pretty easy to clean. I like the various racks offered and will use them all eventually. Only drawback is that the doors need a seal, both the smoker door and the fire/water access door.

I recently bought this as my first smoker and I'm impressed. It was easy to assemble taking less than an hour with only a phillips screwdriver needed. This thing is massive and heavy. No need to worry about it falling apart on you anytime soon. I followed the break in process letting it smoke up for about 30 minutes. It's easy to use and the 2 burners allow you better heat and smoke control than single burner models. I highly recommend adding a seal around the door for better smoke retention. I purchased a self-sticking seal for about $10 that works great. The large water tray was convenient holding more than 2 liters which was enough to cook a large tri tip. The 2 wood chip trays were enough for most cooking. Refilling the trays was easy without loss of heat or smoke. Since most smoking can be done with only 1 burner, I alternated burners as the chips were used up reducing the need to refill the chip tray. This is a great smoker for beginners with a large capacity. We can't wait to smoke our Thanksgiving turkey this year.
Other accessories you'd want to consider are a cover, a meat thermometer and silicone mitts for handling the hot surfaces.

Great product as is and easy to assemble and use. I did make a few changes to the smoker though and that's why it didn't rate 5 stars
I added 2" casters to the 4 legs to make moving it around a little easier.
I caulked the door glass as it leaked a lot of smoke around the hinge side.
I caulked the bottom door as it also leaked pretty bad.
I also caulked the top vent as it rained and a lot of water went into the smoker.
I have smoked brisket, pork and chicken and all came out great. I smoked 3 different times and used about 1/2 tank of propane total.
Note that you have to adjust the burner between light and high to get the smoker down to a constant 225 degrees. But, once set there, it stayed for hours.

The Smoke Hollow was easy to put together, and all the screw holes lined up properly. Prior to seasoning it, I followed advice from some BBQ websites and sealed around the doors with Nomex self stick gasket. This worked extremely well. However the smoke poured out from around the glass window. After it cooled and I cleaned around the inside of the window frame, I used a high temp RTV silicone sealant. When smoking the next time, much less escaped, though my seal wasn't thick enough in some places.
This past weekend, I smoked a 15 pound packer brisket, and I have to say once I got the hang of temperature regulation, it was very steady. Used one burner on low-medium and was able to keep it at 225-250. Used chunks of pecan in the wood trays but covered with punctured foil instead of the lids that came with the smoker. They stopped with the white smoke pretty quickly and then slowly burned down properly. One tray full lasted about 6 hours. The brisket was excellent by all accounts from those who ate it.
I also made a low wooden cart on locking casters to sit the smoker on, and it rolls so easily on the deck. Makes it easy to store next to the house when not in use.

Best Purchase Ever!
I have been eyeing this smoker for a long time now. I finally made the purchase and I couldn't be happier. It was a cinch to assemble, it is very sturdy, I love the different smoking racks for the different meats, and the size is perfect. I LOVE this smoker! I would highly recommend this smoker to anyone looking for a GREAT propane smoker.

This is Not a risky purchase !
The smoker arrived - double boxed with two layers of Styrofoam, tightly and carefully packed, all pieces were individually wrapped. The smoker hardware came counted, sorted, labeled and vacuum packed on a single card. While researching this smoker I had occasion to call their customer service, the calls (two) were to verify the BTU output and to check for future part availability. The calls were answered in person (no machine) they were pleasant and informative. I started the smoker to test and "season" it . The outside temp was 38F gusty winds. The smoker with both burners on high quickly rose to 370F and climbing when I cut it back. The cabinet thermometer was accurate, checked against a maverick 733 digital thermometer. The smoker thermometer is in the top of the cabinet, there is temp difference between the top and bottom. I cooked a 18lb pork butt no problem maintaining 225F the cook took 8hrs. Clean up took 1/2 hr. I wrote this to dispute some negative reviews. This machine rocks!

Did the RTV seal. Waiting on the door seal. Minimal smoke leakage other than door. Stable temps. 210F on low, one burner. 250F between low and medium on one burner.Yes, it will have dings and some poor fitting, but not to the point you can't fix it easily.Definitely worth the price.

Big Smoker! Was able to cook 16 Slabs no problem. Wood trays are not the easiest to put back in. But over all not a bad smoker!
